Five useful tips for ACC cartridges.

CleanCigaretteLogo(13Hello:) Dawn here bringing you all things A Clean Cigarette related. Each week I try to think about what the ACC Community would like to know about. In the past blogs have been done on everything from tar to stink and clinical trials to community reach out.  Today I think we should bring it back to the basics.

In an effort to do that I am going to list 5 of the top questions that I hear at A Clean Cigarette here, with their answers. This top 5 are not in anyway the only questions we get, but they are questions that nearly every customer asks at one time or another. If when we are through with this list you have a question that is not answered here and you would like to see it added please drop me an E-mail to

Alright let’s get started. 🙂

Q: How and where should I store my ACC Cartridges?

A: This is a great question. How we store our cartridges can really effect the life of that cartridge.  A Clean Cigarette cartridges should ideally be stored metal end down in a cool, dark place.  Many people including myself choose to store them in refrigerators or even freezers. Heat is the natural enemy of an A Clean Cigarette cartridge and they should never be stored where the temperature will exceed 72 degrees. A common mistake is storing them in a car glove compartment. This will effect the cartridges. It is also helpful to the life of the cartridge to leave the plastic liner unopened until you would like to use it. Long exposure to air can also effect the taste and hit life of the cartridge.

Q: How will I know when my cartridge is empty?

A: Okay this is really a 2 part answer.

*If you are like me and you are puffing on your electronic cigarette all day non-stop then the first indicator of it being done is a bad “burnt” taste in your mouth. Many people describe it in many ways, but every one agrees it taste bad.

*If you are a slow smooth puffer who let’s their ACC cartridge cool in between puffs then you may find that before the burnt taste happens the “puff of vapor smoke” will decrees or even stop. This is the ideal way for the product to run out.

Regardless of how you enjoy our ACC electronic cigarette you will be able to tell when it is no longer working. Before you toss them however, keep in mind that we offer .5 cents each for them when you return them to us for recycling.

Q:  How do I know which nicotine level is right for me?

A: With this question it is important to note that not everyone is the same, so although these suggestions are accurate for most people, there are exceptions to every rule. Feel free to ask questions and remember that your input is the best tool your A Clean Cigarette team member has to work with when we help you make a choice.

Here at A Clean Cigarette we do not believe that one size fits all. With our main goal of becoming as close to the real thing as fake can get, we have worked hard to keep our levels of nicotine comparable to traditional cigarette levels.

For instance

0 Nic = No Nicotine

11 Nic (1.1) = Most Ultra Light brand cigarettes.

14 & 18 Nic (1.4 & 1.8) = Most Light brand cigarettes.

24 Nic (2.4) = Most Full Flavor brand cigarettes.

36 Nic (3.6) = Non-Filter brand cigarettes.


Q: How should I puff on my A Clean Cigarette?

A: The answer for this question is better answered visually verses with words. So here is a quick video to demonstrate for you. 🙂


Q: How do I make my A Clean Cigarette cartridge last longer?

A: In a way we have already given you most of the information you need to get the best quality life out of your A Clean Cigarette cartridge here in this blog. If you store them correctly and puff them correctly then we are really doing a lot to help the cartridges last as long as possible. There is one more thing however that we can do that will be a massive help. This simple thing is, in my opinion, the leading cause for cartridges having a reduced life.

Battery Quality.

Our batteries are covered 100%  for at least 90 days, however as with any lithium ion battery as you charge it day after day, it can begin to loose charge strength and life. We recommend that you buy new ACC batteries about once every 6 to 8 months. Old batteries have to work too hard to heat up correctly, this leads to premature burning. Which of course negatively effects the life of the cartridge.

I hope these answers help you and again thank you so much for taking the time to check out the A Clean Cigarette blog. If you are looking for an A Clean Cigarette near you or our on-line store please visit Thank you again!
